beauty: in my makeup bag-the basics

i love nail polish, and beauty products, and makeup. i love the products i use, but i also like new ideas of what everyone else uses.

i started taking things out of my makeup bag planning to do one post until i realized i have far too many things in there. for the next few weeks let's talk about what's in my makeup bag starting with the basics.

it's hard to believe i fit so much stuff in this small bag, but i really do fit a ton of stuff in there.

i've talked about face primer before. i always start with primer. i currently use monistat chafing gel-yes, you read that right. next i cover under eye circles and blemishes with clinique concealer. i prime my eyes with urban decay.

i use bare minerals original foundation, concealer, blush, warmth, and tinted mineral veil

i never thought i had a lot of brushes until i took them all out. most of them are bare minerals. eye shadow brushes are avon and clinique. i apply a couple of coats of mascara while warming the eyelash curler in my hand and then separate eyelashes as needed.

what are the basics in your makeup bag?



  1. That's an adorable bag! And it totally DOES fit a lot!

    I keep foundation, blush, and eye makeup in my basic makeup bag!

  2. What an adorable little makeup bag! I didn't realize how much fits into my bag, either, until I took it all out! Haha.

  3. I'm super simple with my makeup that I carry with me: Powder foundation, mascara, and a light tinted gloss stays with me at all times. I keep the rest (blush, eyeshadow, brushes, etc) at home :)

  4. Love this! I used to use the chafing gel, too. Works really well!

  5. Love this! I used to use the chafing gel, too. Works really well!

  6. I think I use about 25% of the products in my bag!! I don't wear eye shadow on a daily basis so all of that just sits there and I have like four different kinds of concealer because I can never decide what product is my favorite for the money.

  7. love bare minerals. Have not used them in forever! & I LOVE everything Urban Decay!

  8. I also LOVE bare minerals. I need to get a new concealer, I have been having a hard time covering up these dark circles!

  9. I feel like I need a make up intervention. I'm not liking what my face looks like any more. Anyway, thanks for the post. I'm hoping I can get some good make-up at some good old American prices. LMK if you have any make-up tips!
